Yesterday I needed to split a log with a long origin story that I’ll skip for now. I got to use my ridiculous looking, patented, log-splitting axe! It was a yard sale acquisition, costing only a dollar or two. I bought it because of the patent number on it. I wasn’t sure I’d ever use it and I’m guessing I’m the only one on my block with one. It was needed as my neighbor with the hydraulic log splitter moved away. All it took was a couple of whacks and the deed was done.
There was no indication that it was also trademarked but I found one for it, so it’s even cooler than I realized.
